Daniels-Eisenstaedt Photo Tour: Atlanta

Daniels had stayed in Atlanta's Biltmore Hotel during his 1937 trip, and Eisenstaedt took a picture of it in 1938. Another downtown building's rooftop water tank advertises Rich's department store.

At least some of Eisenstaedt's photos of upper-class houses are presumably from Atlanta, given Daniels's ruminations on North Atlanta wealth in A Southerner Discovers the South.

Upper-class houses-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 (To confirm or correct on any of these houses' location, email jritterh@gmu.edu)

Further down the social scale, there is a picture of a loan office named for Atlanta's historical nickname, the "Gate City."
